EVERYONE WINS!!! YAY!!! Wow, that headline reads like spam, but how else do you describe what I’ve got going on for you celebs?? I’ve been devouring magazines since I was a young pup—tearing pages out, cutting them up, rearranging—so transitioning from print to digital has, perhaps paradoxically, been slow for me. I still love the [...]
As the former thisislifeinaustin, I still get a fair amount of Austin news, and I often wish I was in town for the fun. Despite the fact that my 10-year high school reunion is next week (what?! and does that warrant its own post??), I won’t be coming home til December. However, were I in [...]

This: Fab Greek FroYo Flavas: Banana Peanut Butter / Blueberry Vanilla Graham / Strawberry Shortcake [...]
Unfortunately, neither Austin nor Aspen has a Ben & Jerry’s, and the Denver airport B&J’s isn’t participating (too many free cones?) … but just in case you’re traveling somewhere that does have a Scoop Shop (San Antonio?), I recommend you get there immediately. Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz is my fave shop-only flavor (you can’t get it [...]

But there’s no reason not to, as water has billions of health benefits, beauty benefits, skin benefits, athletic performance benefits, diet/satiety benefits … the list goes on! I’m usually pretty good about getting my 64 ounces in [...]
I remember joking about making a LOCAL badge in 2008. Finally someone really did it—good work, kids, good work. Click here to print the thing out, find out what the QR code says, and more. Three more Local-y things this week for SXSW: 1. Local Band Achachay! Plays a Billion Venues Thurs March 15th: Northeast by [...]
